It is perfectly fine to put the registry information on the shower invite – a shower is a party where you are supposed to bring a gift – traditionally the whole point of the shower was to set the bride up with the things she needed to keep her new house!

However, I think you’ll find that you don’t have to do anything.  Most people can figure out registry information by looking online – as long as your bride has stuck with the usual suspects.  Otherwise, people will call and ask.  And it sounds like you’ve asked them to RSVP by telephone?  In that case, they have the perfect opportunity to ask.

I’m sure it will turn out just fine; don’t worry.  People manage to figure out wedding registry information without anything on the invitation; this isn’t that different.

I would have never have thought to even put it in the invite anyway. I would just let them know when the RSVP. Word of mouth will get out if the all know each other.

Is the bride registered at major stores that Weddingchannel.com and theknot would include in their registries?  If so, it is possible that most of your guests already know where she is registered, and the others can ask their friends (or you).  I don’t think this is as much of an issue as it was back when people had to physically visit stores to see registries.

I wouldn’t worry.  I’m sure word will get around or they’ll call and ask you.  You should post some pics of the invites.  They sound really nice.

Not a big deal! Honestly, I think most people are internet savy enough to search the big sites for registry info. Girls are almost always registered at either Target, Bed Bath & Beyond or a major department store.

One of my bridesmaids is throwing a shower and forgot to put that it was a shower on the invitation let alone registry information.
